I’m so proud of my brilliant friend and colleague @JoyAnnReid.

Congratulations, good sis! You are a trailblazer and I can’t wait to see what magic you’ll make with your new primetime show!

(The ReidOut weekdays at 7pm EST on @MSNBC.)

I second this, all of this. Congrats, @JoyAnnReid!

“The ReidOut” will be based in Washington and focus on political analysis and punditry, but Ms. Reid said she also planned to address race, class, policing and other “cataclysmic social issues we need to reckon with.”

Congratulations, ⁦@JoyAnnReid⁩!

Passengers on a flight from Dallas to Newark were ordered back to their assigned seats after — in an attempt to gain more social distance —they moved to empty rows. They were told they had not paid for exit row seats, which are more expensive.

Quoted @nhannahjones

It’s been almost a year since we published the #1619Project, the most important work of my life, and I am so excited to announce that we will be partnering with @Lionsgate and the one and only @Oprah to bring this work on slavery’s legacy to tv and film!

When the #1619Project came out almost a year ago, I stood in tearful applause for the profound offering that it was giving our culture and nation. Today, I am honored to be a part of @nhannahjones’ vision to bring her transformative work to a global audience. Stay tuned, y’all!

Please trust me when I say protecting the integrity of this work, of what we did, is the most important thing to me. We were meticulous and so cautious about who we chose to partner with and will continue to be so as we select new partners in the further. More news to come. 🙏🏽

The NFL will play “Lift Ev’ry Voice” ahead of its first games next season. But what about the number of teams fundraising for Trump? And the dearth of black people in leadership positions with the league? Great piece on this by @DonteStallworth

Krystal Ball: "Some of [Trump's] support is racist. Much of it, is a more oblique yearning for an earlier time when high school educated white men, willing to work hard, could achieve stability. A time when white men were unequivocally on top of the national pecking order."

Some Trump supporters are racist and some Trump supporters simply long for a more racist time.

"Americans are the people who pursued our Manifest Destiny across the ocean, into the uncharted wilderness, over the tallest mountains, and then into the skies and even into the stars."

Is “manifest destiny” really racist and imperialist, you ask? Yes! Don’t take my word for it. Ask the guy who coined the phrase. 1/

The #1619Project published online today and it is my profound hope that we will reframe for our readers the way we understand our nation, the legacy of slavery, and most importantly, the unparalleled role black people have played in this democracy.
